Acer releases new Predator into the wild
Acer has released its new Aspire Predator AG5900-U3092 gaming rig into the wild. The scalable $1,350 system - which targets mainstream core gamers - features Intel Core i7 quad-core processors, 1.5TB hard drives, 8GB DDR3 SDRAM and Windows 7 Home Premium.
The rig also boasts ATI Radeon HD 5850 graphics with 1GB of discrete video memory, ATI Eyefinity Technology, full DX 11 support and high-def 5.1-channel audio.
"Not everyone needs the most extreme gaming rig, so we designed the AG5900, a more mainstream alternative to our premium AG7750," explained Acer spokesperson Steve Smith.
"[So], the AG5900 [offers] excellent core features, such as a high-speed processor, excellent graphics and tons of memory to hobble the competition at an affordable price."
Additional specs include:
- 12 total USB ports (four on top, eight in back).
- Headphone and microphone jacks.
- HDMI port.
- Two DVI ports.
